PostSubject: Hello from Northern IL/WI   Thu Nov 24, 2011 2:55 am

Greetings all! I'm a 21 year old college student who lives in Northern Illinois and attends school in Northeast Wisconsin. I just recently started pipe smoking on the suggestion of a friend and I absolutely love it. Being so new to the culture of pipe smoking, I was directed to this site by suggestions of users of reddit.com's pipe tobacco page. I hope that I can glean all sorts of knowledge such as what kind of pipes to look for, new tobacco blends to try, and maybe even how to fashion my own pipe as I do enjoy woodworking. I look forward to what the Brother's of Briar has to offer for me and my new found hobby.

Welcome. I'm a Wiso. grad myself. Uhle's is a great shop, try a number of their blends, they do wonders with burley.

That was indeed you Zombie! Thank you for your guidance as I am already learning so much. I tip my hat to you in thanks and hope that we can maintain a steady line of communication now that we will have two internet highways that both of us will be using.

Welcome from a former cheesehead, and what Natch said - get yourself to Uhles next time you find yourself in M'waukee. You'll be glad you did.


Cheers,

RR
